Run For Charlotte


Charlotte Kelly was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma in June, 2009.  Despite extensive treatments including chemotherapy, radiation, and stem-cell transplants, Charlotte’s disease relapsed and she is in the fight for her life.  In 2011, Run for Charlotte raised over $60,000 for the Van Andel Research Institute, which, under the direction of renowned pediatric oncologist Giselle Sholler, M.D., is a leader in neuroblastoma research.  Our organizing board, Prayers for Charlotte, is a 100% volunteer organization that works to raise funds for neuroblastoma research and relief for families fighting cancer.  There are no salaried employees and all proceeds from our events, including this road race, will support this dual effort.  Tax information is available upon  request.
